Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

New 255w does not work.

I bought the 255w from Circuit City a couple days ago, I plugged it in to charge it and tryed using it, and nothing works on it. No light or anything. We tryed taking it back to the store but since they are going out of business they would not exchange it, but said it must be a defective unit.

Sorry but you'll have to call Garmin. Never purchase anything from a store going out of business unless you check it out in the store and your happy it works.

My Garmin 255w will not power up. Can this device be fixed?


Do a soft reset by pushing the power switch to the left and hold it there for 10 to 15 seconds. The unit should turn on.

255w in a loop - loading maps, then restarts...can't recharge


Use a USB connection to your computer and let it charge for three hours. Also download updates while your at it. Cigarette lighter charger is not efficient

Hitachi won't replace


I had the same problem a red halo that eventually led to complete discoloration. I called Hitachi and they had their local rep come out and look, they said it would cost $400 to install $1500 new light engine. Then a couple of months ago, I read a post on this site (Varian - Feb. 14, 2008 - suggesting Hitachi Customer Relations at 800-654 7013 was providing the light engine without charge).

So, I called them again and was not able to persuade them to cover my Hitachi LCD projection (50V500). It appears Hitachi has a poor record with their Light Engine as well all of their new generation TV. They have since stopped selling the LCD projection, but they are into plasma and LCD TV and likewise do not seem to have a good track record - as I hear from other users.

I did the smart thing and switched over to a Sony XBR4 Bravia 52" LCD TV 1080p HD at a reduced price (Approximately $2800 from Amazon.com!). My Hitachi cost me about $ 3600 at a Circuit City Store. Therefore, no Hitachi products for me and not from Circuit City, since, Circuit City asked for $4000 for the same Sony TV, I bought from Amazon, which included delivery and installation. Circuit City would add another $80 for delivery.

HITACHI really sucks!!! Put these people out of business!

Battery light blinking red while charging


My camera charger was blinking red and the battery would not charge. I called Casio customer service and they offered to send one out! They did ask when the camera was purchased and I told them it was just a couple of months ago when it was actually more than a year. Casio 1-800-435-7732
